Why a woman drove to Washington from Tennessee to protest Muslim prayers at the National Cathedral

Several hundred Muslims held Friday prayers in Washington’s National Cathedral last week, a first for the well-known Episcopal church, the Washington Post reports.

Some people are very, very unhappy about it. Among them: A Michigan woman named Christine Weick, who sneaked into the cathedral during the private service to tell the worshipers to “leave our churches alone.”

A day later, Weick spoke to the conservative news site World Net Daily, which called her “a folk hero of sorts for thousands, if not millions, of Christians.” Weick, who said she lives out of her car, told WND that she read about the prayer service on Drudge Report days before it happened.

“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital,” she said of the news coverage in advance of the interfaith service. She was staying in Tennessee at the time and drove hundreds of miles to find a way into the service and, she said, to do something about it.
